Best day ever!

Cescaphe knows what they’re doing, and they do it well! The beautiful Ballroom was the perfect venue for us, and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience. Our Coordinator, Lilly, was amazing to work with and made our day stress-free. Our wedding day was an absolute dream and we truly felt like the guests of honor. 10/10 recommend!

Cescaphe and Joanna are the best of the best!

My husband, Brendan and I just celebrated our wedding day a couple of weeks ago at Vie. When we first got engaged, we knew we wanted to celebrate our wedding at one of Cescaphe’s beautiful venues. My sister had her wedding at the ballroom 5 years ago and it was perfect.

Joanna, our event coordinator at Vie, was detail oriented, personable, and so helpful throughout the entire planning process, particularly as we neared our wedding date. She could not have been more pleasant to work with.

Marsi was our maitre d for the night of. She was awesome and made sure Brendan and I had a great experience all around! She even helped my mom and coordinator bustle my dress.

Could not recommend Cescaphe or Joanna more!!

If you can swing it, Cescaphe is the best!

Cescaphe was incredible! We got married at Vie in August. The outdoor ceremony space was perfect, even in the heat (we gave all of our guests fans and tissues as they walked in.) Our guests also enjoyed the courtyard throughout the reception for cigar smoking, cornhole, and mingling away from the very busy dancefloor. The venue itself is spacious and well-decorated, with tons of natural light, new wood floors, and the incredible mosaic in the atrium. All of our guests raved about the food (it really is that incredible), the staff (so accommodating!), and the seamlessness of coordination with the Cescaphe trolley. We planned most of the wedding from California, and felt very comfortable working with Joanna who accommodated our schedule and virtual meeting needs. Our maitre’d was Marsi, who was responsive, patient, and kind - she made sure we ate all night and kept us on time for everything. The bridal suite was absolutely necessary - we used it a lot for staging, changing, and taking a moment for ourselves.If you can swing it, Cescaphe is the best!
